Batman: The Animated Series - The Legend Begins back to product details

Batman as he should be

I know a lot of people consider Tim Burton's to be the finest film adaptation of Batman, and they're sort of right. If you wanted real people to play out the saga of the Dark Knight, it'd be the way to go. But, let's face it: we want the fantastic. We want the impossible. We all know that if Batman were to leap out of comic books and onto the screen, it'd be as a cartoon. And not as those gawdawful Superfriends cartoons; you'd want this. Batman: The Animated Series takes all of the elements of Batman and serves it up just right. The art may look simple, but its use of light and shadow bely its true sophistication. The comic-book look adds to the power of the storylines: the villians are maniacal and flawed, and the Dark Knight himself has never seemed more monstrous and humane. This is no kiddie stuff; this is the way Batman should have always been presented.
